About the Powell Gardens

Powell Gardens is a private, not-for-profit botanical garden located just east of Kansas City, Missouri. Our mission: to be an experience that embraces the Midwest's spirit of place and inspires an appreciation for the importance of plants in our lives.

Set on more than 915 acres of lush, rolling hills and windswept meadows, Powell Gardens offers breathtaking display gardens, interesting architecture, a nature trail and a year-round calendar of special events and classes for the entire family.
